There are so many illustrations of men biking, so I wanted to make a poster celebrating lady cyclists. This poster is an ode to the strong, beautiful, badass women who climb San Francisco’s fierce, lovely hills.
I am a designer and illustrator who lives in San Francisco with a jazz guitarist and a magical cat. I like minimalism, geometry, symbols, bold colors, and humor.
I incorporated wolves and the moon, symbols of female power, strength, intelligence, and community. I started off in a very silly and cutesy direction, but ended up with a much more minimal and elegant design.
Riding bikes is how I bonded with San Francisco and some of my favorite people here, but it’s also a good way to be alone and lost in thought.
Cycling is a very empowering thing, and it helps me stay adventurous, independent, active, calm, and inspired.
